Paraxtreme BMX with Ricky Owen – Video

Ricky Owen Trains With Jason Phelan.

Ricky Owen gets some training tips from BMX pro Jason Phelan thanks to the guys at Paraxtreme

There’s not many people who get the opportunity to get coached by a pro rider like Jason Phelan, but thanks to the guys at Paraxtreme that’s exactly what Ricky Owen got. The young British rider is shown in a new video attempting to land a backflip at an indoor BMX park. Although Ricky didn’t managed to pull it off this time round, the word on the grapevine is that away from the glare of the cameras he regularly makes some pretty stunning moves.

Describing Ricky Owen as disabled seems totally wrong. He’s clearly a lot more able than the overwhelming majority of people out there and a lot more determined as well. The fact that he wears a prosthetic leg isn’t what makes him exceptional; it’s his abilities and will to succeed that mark him out.

Ricky’s short video is the latest to be put out by the guys at Paraxtreme. They’ve also put out mini edits featuring Aaron “Wheelz” Fotheringham and Ollie Hancock, which are equally worth checking out.
